Western Tribal Carbon Management Strategies Forum - Spring 2024

Tribal nations have a critical role to play in helping the U.S. meet its climate obligations as we work to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Tribes can supply our nation with abundant clean energy and critical minerals needed to build the clean energy and industrial economy of the future, while increasing energy access, building Native businesses and creating high-wage, middle class jobs for Tribal communities themselves. Opportunities in Indian Country will vary from region to region and depend on available resources on Tribal and adjacent Federal, State and private lands, including renewable wind, solar and geothermal, fossil energy with carbon capture, nuclear, and a diverse range of critical materials and rare earth elements. Tribal governments can now take advantage of an unprecedented federal framework of federal energy and climate funding, financing and incentives through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act to harness their energy and mineral resources to the economic, social and environmental benefit of Tribal members and their communities.

Recognizing this historic opportunity,  forums have been held in Las Vegas (Fall 2022), Moab (Spring 2023), and Santa Fe (Fall 2023) bringing together leaders of Tribes with significant fossil and other energy resources, and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) leadership. Many insights have been gained from these forums and there was agreement to meet again in 2024 to move forward on what was learned.

As such, USEA and the United States Departement of Energy's Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management cordially invite you to participate in the fourth iteration of the Western Tribal Carbon Management Strategies Forum. The forum will be held over the course of three days from April 30 - May 2, 2024 with April 30 as a Tribal-only day. It will be located at the Spring Creek Ranch with a block of rooms available to forum attendees. Please see below for lodging information.
